with survivors to get a better sense secretary clinton pointed out there was an fbi investigation and is still going on. it wil s >> when you're in these positions, the last thing you want to do is interfere with any other process -- >> i realize that. >> number two -- >> i realize that's a good excuse -- >> no, it's a fact. number two, i would recommend hilyouead both what the arb said about it and the classified arb because even today there are questions being raised.doubthey were terrorists. they were militants. attacked us. they killed our people. but what was going on and why they were doing what they were doing -- >> no, no, no -- again, we were misled that there were supposedly protests and something sprang out of that. and that was easily ascertained that was not the fact. the american people could have known that within days and they didn't. >> with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd kill americans? what difference at this point does it make? it is our job to figure
threatening e-mails from an anonymous sender. the fbi got involved and discovered the e-mails came from paula broadwell, a biographer who it turns out had an affair with the man she wrote about, that man, general david petraeus and resigned cia director after the story went public just after the election. three months later she wants her story out. is it a little too late? >> well, nobody cares. i mean, really, and what's interesting about it, she actually complains in the pa piece that she came out and wrote that nobody would move on. and then everybody's moved on and then she wants to talk about it. >> jon: yes. vicky, you were offered the story. >> i was offered the story and i turned her down because i was offered two terms. the first, could she have the cover and i have a big piece coming out which addressed the real issue about jill kelley, i would disagree kirsten, one question that matters is how does somebody like this have access to general petraeus and general allen and are we safe as a result? i mean, that's, that is the real question. but no, she asked me for the-- to the intervi
's still subject of the fbi investigation. >> john: as we just heard senator paul called secretary clinton's actions inexcusable and said she did not read her cables. >> any requests, any of the cables having to do with security did not come to my attention. 1.43 million cables come through the state department. they're all addressed to me. >> cenk: does that make sense to you? is that fair? >> sure, i've heard political hyperbole that suggests that the tragic death of four americans in benghazi rivals in some way to 9/11 in terms of its impact forgetting about afghanistan. 20,000 soldiers were dead. iraq where 4,000 soldiers died in service the country. i think it's ridiculous. i was an assistant secretary of state, and the secretary paid me and others of my colleagues to sort through information that came through our respective channels and report to her issues of significance and particularly issues that couldn't be resolveed at a lower level. i mean, obviously as the accountability review board indicated there were mistakes made. there were misjudgments made, and under estimations of t
with the prime minister, among others. fbi agents have had a difficult time working on site in benghazi to analyze the crime scene because of security concerns. the fbi is tapping into facebook like this. people can fill out a form on the fbi's website. meanwhile, libyan officials say they are frustrated because they don't control the area where the attack happened. militants do. and those militants are sympathetic with al qaeda. local leaders are not cooperating. withins are also said to be afraid to talk and key police officers terrified of revenge attacks. >> so zain, has u.s. diplomacy overall changed since the benghazi attack? >> you know, it really has, carol. i was speaking to experts who say the security arm at the state department, known as diplomatic security, has always tried to balance diplomacy on one hand and security on the other. to the extent to which, how can you let officials go out and meet people? since benghazi, there's a lot less people-to-people contact and much more emphasis on security. the other thing, too, analysts say before 9/11, the diplomacy was focused o
to the bottom of that? >> for the moment, i know that there is an fbi investigation going on because i personally called the fbi director and was debriefed by him and told that they're making progress, and that some things may or may not be right to take place in the not too distant future. >> i am going based on so we can get that behind us. but we can move beyond that. can you make that commitment to me? >> in all fairness, i do think we know what happened. it is very clear. were you at the briefing with the tapes? >> no. >> there was a briefing with tapes which we all saw which made it crystal clear. we sat for several hours with or intel folks, who described to us precisely what we were seeing. we saw all of the events unfold. we had a very complete and detailed description. >> we would happen now because we have the reports. what we do not know is why we were misled. i am just looking to make sure that you will work with me so that we find of what the administration knew. -- out what the administration knew. >> when you say why we were misled, that implies an intent to actually mi
in benghazi. >> i believe that drk i know that the fbi has been briefing some committees, i assume members or staff of this committee are included. i don't know that but i would assume, about the progress of their investigation. i got the most recent update from the director a few days ago when he returned from north africa. they are following some very promising leads and putting together cases. they would have to speak to you directly about that in a classified setting. but i think what they are trying to determine is how best to respond. and i think what the president clearly said is we will respond and we will bring those to justice. and i don't think anybody should doubt this president at his word. we have some very good example that it may take time but he does not in any way divert attention from the goal of bringing them to justice. >> thank you, madam secretary. the president also said al qaeda has been decembimated and in li of the recent terrorist acts tists we continue to see in north africa, around the world, would you character that as al qaeda has been decimated? >> core al
about it. i'll tell you this, if so, it's going to be short lived, because i know from talking to the f.b.i. director that they are pursuing that diligently. he was personally just in libya. meeting on this and those efforts are going to continue. and i know that this president -- you know, he doesn't bluff about these kinds of things. he has said they are going to pay a price and said he would go into pakistan if we had evidence to operate on and i'm confident when and if we are prepared, we will execute with respect to finding justice for what happened in benghazi. >> the keystone xl pipeline and senator boxer said, it wouldn't belong before it crossed your desk. a bipartisan group of senators signed on to a letter to president obama requesting that he approve the construction of the pipeline. we are asking that the review process be completed by the end of march and i hope you will be able to comply with that. >> i will try. i need to check in with the legal department and make sure -- i don't want to make a promise that i'm unaware of what can be fulfilled. i can tell you this. it's hap
assume. but for the moment i know there is an fbi investigation going on because i personally called the fbi director and was told they are making progress and that some things may or may not be right to take place. >> so we can get that behind us and find out what actually happened, that we can move on beyond that, can you make that commitment to me? >> in all fairness, i think we do know what happened. were you at the briefing with the tapes? >> no. >> there was a briefing with tapes that we all saw, those of us who went to it that made it crystal clear. we sat for several hours with our intel people to describe exactly what we were seeing. we saw all of the events unfold. we have a complete detailed description. >> we know what happened in been gauzy -- in benghazi because we have the reports. i am making sure that you work with me so we can find out what the administration knew. >> i do not want the american people left with this impression. would you say why we were misled. that implies an intent to mislead you. i think there was a description of a variants and talking points. i
socialite's that prompted david petraeus to resign as cia director. that is general john allen. the fbi uncovered messages from the marine general during its investigation of david petraeus last year. he has been cleared. allegations of professional misconduct were not substantiated by the investigation. the secretary news from the obama administration. the u.s. representative -- u.s. trade representative ron kirk will leave the administration by the end of february. the white house confirmed this. his departure was widely expected after he said last year he was planning to leave and return to his native texas. asked representative, he was responsible for developing and recommending american trade policy to the president. other headlines, this from israel. prime minister benjamin netanyahu wins, but it takes a big hit. israel was thrown into political chaos in iraq after and his party suffered a setback in the nation's first elected in four years, but his party did win. he does retain his position. that's the doorpost. another international story. russia is ready with talks -- for talks
evidence yet to charge him. fbi director mueller was in libya last week, talking to the libyans about the ongoing investigation. it's very frustrating to the families and to many who watch this, these investigations, these international ones, are complicated and they do take time. but believe me, wolf, the bad guys in the region watch this. and the longer it goes without anybody being brought to justice, it's an indication to them that they have freedom of action, if you will, to target western facilities and westerners, and you see things like the attack on the algerian oil facility. >> so, fran, i want to ask you, when you were watching this testimony from secretary clinton, this very lengthy testimony, hitting on so many topics, what was your big impression? what was your big takeaway from what you heard from her today? >> you know, i put myself, kate, in the position of the families who lost, you know, ambassador stevens' family and the other families. and i think, more than anything, i was frustrated. you know, they were asking -- the members of congress were asking secretary cli
.i.a. and the fbi have to be able to communicate more effectively. these agencies communicate more effectively. how do we get better? you know what? it has been a lot better. and nobody said we need to know why george bush let this happen. we need to know why republicans stood in the way. it is a totally different reaction. >> bill: what we had -- again which president opposed to the 9-11 commission, did a tremendous job led by tom kane of new jersey. and lee hamilton from maine. they came up with the recommendations. they looked at it from a bipartisan way. what lessons can we learn. it was not let's bring in the secretary of state who would have been condy rice. let's bring in the secretary of state and hold her responsible for the whole damn terrorist attack. >> i would have fired you! condy rice! >> bill: that's the difference. sherry is down in brownwood texas. >> caller: good morning. >> bill: good morning. what do you think? >> caller: my only thing that i really took out of this because i expected hillary to do what she did what i'm saddened about as a progressive is john mccain has turned
brought to justice there? >> well i believe, well, i know that the fbi has been briefing some committees. i assume members of staff of this committee are included. i don't know that but i would assume, about the progress of their investigation. i got the most recent update from the director just a few days ago when he returned from north africa. they are following some very promising leads, and putting together cases. they with have to speak to you directly about that in a classified setting but you think what they are trying to determine is how best to respond and i think what the president clearly said is, we will respond. and we will bring those to justice and i don't think anybody should doubt this president at his word. we have some very good examples of that. it may take time but he does not in any way divert attention from the goal of bringing them to justice. >> thank you, madam secretary. the president also said al qaeda has been decimated. and in light of the recent terrorist activities that we continue to see in north africa, around the world, would you characterize that as al
anything with patrick swayze. >> you mean the fbi is going to pay me to serve. [ laughter ] >> woe! >> most heinous. >> stephanie: isn't that how it ends, right? patrick swayze goes surfing and presumably kills himself -- >> well, there he goes again. >> i'm performing tomorrow night at the blue state ball in indianapolis. >> awesome. >> come on down if you are there and freezing. >> stephanie: because you weren't busy enough. >> i have no life. i love you all. >> stephanie: thank you, honey. we'll have tina dupuy next on the "stephanie miller show." ♪ [♪ theme music ♪] >> stephanie: hello tv world. tina dupuy coming up right after the break here. jacki schechner? >> yes. >> stephanie: i always like to do one story a day that makes me feel better about my pathetic love life. woman choked man for hogging blanket. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: he was trying to get more of the blanket, as men do. she called police, and was highly intoxicated however. >> that warrens a 911 call. he also won't get me a glass of water. >> stephanie: all right. here she is my bff, jacki
's currently at the justice department. she was fbi director mueller's chief of staff. she also worked on the enron task force helping to prosecute some of the people in the enron case. you know who else did? the current white house counsel. so they have sort of a women's -- they are sort of -- you can talk about a boys club, they are a women's power club. they prosecuted some of those men with enron and came up through the ranks with alaina kagan. >> real quickly here, i know there are three recess appointments the president made and the supreme court has now said they are unconstitutional. what does that mean for the white house? he made these appointments while the senate was out during recess. how is the white house responding? >> reporter: we have asked them for comment and let me check my blackberry to see if it's coming in. it now has to go to the supreme court again. this will probably go to the supreme court and be battled out there. the president can make recess appointments when the senate is out of session. at the time the president made these recess appointments, the senat
know, the fbi is still on the case. all of the reforms suggested by the arb are important. plus this high-threat index that the state department is implementing. john kerry must make the security of our personnel abroad a very high priority. but let's understand, these people, these magnificent heroes who work in our state department sign up to put their lives on the line, if necessary, to project diplomacy and hopefully win hearts and minds around the world. and that is important. we can't just hunker down and live in bunkers in the united states of america. >> senator rand paul who has expressed interest in running for president in 2016 said hillary clinton would have been fired over the benghazi attack if he were in charge. take a look. >> i think that ultimately with your leaving, you accept the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9 9/11, and i really mean that. had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieved you of your post. i think it's inexcusable.
